Negro Hackmen are receiving the special attention of the police, and for their ordinance violations will be soundly punished.--On Tuesday night last, at a late hour, the Mayor's Mounted Guard discovered two hacks, driven by Andrew and Henry, filled with slaves, who had been into the country on a frolic, and, as none of them had written permissions, both drivers and passengers were deposited in the lock-up. Yesterday morning the entire party were brought before the Mayor, and after a hearing were sentenced to the lash.
